Religion isn't so bad afterall

Somehow I was put on a listserv from Mapping America, the National Survey of Family Growth. I generally get an email once a week with new findings from their research. Generally the findings are so obvious, I am disappointed that someone spent time or money on finding it. However, this week's finding is a nice one because it counters the assumptions that religion acts as a force to domesticate women and prevent them from getting an education. These findings show that religious women from intact families are more likely to receive a bachelor's degree. More information can be found here
